Category and hashtag searching issue


Hello !Friendica Support

i have trouble with tag searching function on my profile and i also think i have broken a category due to special character.

Let's go for hashtags first:
https://schmaker.eu/search?tag=Unihertz returns nothing
Category also does not work (special character issue?):
https://schmaker.eu/profile/schmaker?category=IT%20%26%20Technologie

This public post has #Unihertz and is in "IT & technologie" though, so it should be discoverable with former links
https://schmaker.eu/display/c83e3896-1063-b92a-e128-de5091829057

Anyone experiencing similar behavior?

Also, it seems like i have trouble searching any of my hashtags. It does not matter if i use search or profile status filtering, i do not get any meaningful results:
https://schmaker.eu/profile/schmaker?tag=auta seems like it does not filter at all.

I can't safely say it started with 2022.12 or with PHP8 migration, but i am highly suspicious about it. Any hints for debugging?

It seems that no tags are working with search function for me. Can anybody confirm?

After DB optimisation (post-tags was corrupted) searching within tags works, but only using search function. Hashtag filtering from profile (https://schmaker.eu/profile/schmaker?tag=auta) still does not work.

Any ideas?

That category with special character https://schmaker.eu/profile/schmaker/status?category=IT%20&%20Technologie still seems not to work - guess it's actual bug, gonna report it later
